Drop Dead Diva
Female
Premiering July 12 on Lifetime, this series focuses on a model wanna-be named Deb who gets killed in a car crash, goes to heaven, but doesn't want to be there, so she goes back to earth in the body of a physically unattractive but smart lawyer named Jane Bingham.

This show had my attention until I realized the model will have access to the lawyer's skills and intellect, which is contrivance in its worst form. Before long this will turn into just another courtroom dramedy and the original swap will be a passing thought. They should have tossed the model into the deep end on her own. She would have had to find a new profession and would have kept the show going for at least a couple seasons. Though I'm basing my opinion solely on the preview, I believe this will get real old after about five episodes and it's a shame. I hope I'm wrong.

Well, it should deliver ratings because Liza, Delta and Paula are going to be guest stars on certain episodes.

From: Dale Ribbons , 160 months, post #3
Ipkiss, I belive you are right. It reminds me of 'Ely Stone', another courtroom dramedy where the gimmick was he saw visions. Yawn.

And forgive my ignorance, but who are Liza, Delta, and Paula?

From: jasobres , 160 months, post #4
Liza Minnelli, Delta Burke, and Paula Abdul.

This is meant to be a limited run series, only thirteen episodes. So don't worry too much about it getting stale because it's not going to be around for long.

From: dis_guise , 160 months, post #6
I'm of two minds about a new inhabitant of a body getting the skills or memories of the original inhabitant. It solves a lot of problems, but, yes, it can eliminate much of the fun. I think that with good writing and with more emphasis placed on how the new self adapts to the new identity, and less on how the new self functions at the old self's job (probably very well), that sort of thing can work fairly well.

From: guest , 160 months, post #7
Seems a little unfair to call the new body unattractive, I thought she was pretty damn cute. Who decided that only women of a certain size are pretty? But yeah, seems like a good idea pulled off in a tired way.

From: guest (tehswitcher) , 160 months, post #8
I was about to say that same thing "guest". I think that woman IS pretty darn cute. "Deb" coulda been placed in a lot of other actually unattractive bodies, and that actress' is not one of them.

From: Ipkiss , 160 months, post #9
Yeah, I'll ditto that.

From: Bodyswap1 , 160 months, post #10
That was the perfect body for Deb to end up with anyway. Because when she was a model she didn't use her brain at all. All she cared about was fashion.

From: dis_guise , 160 months, post #11
There's ugly, and there's Hollywood Ugly... they don't have much connection.

From: Eric , 160 months, post #12
Hollywood view of the world generally is through hollwood glass darkly. For example their view of Middle class midwest amercians. I had no idea we behaved like hollywood loonies.

I just saw it. Not bad, has some good moments & some bad & preachy ones. an intersting little side light thee actress that plays her original beautiful self Deb Brooke D'Orsay played the girlfriend/head cheerleader in Its a Boy Girl Thing

From: Tuggy24g , 160 months, post #14
I think it would of been better if they would of had a girl who was all rough and tough turn into a model. Anywho thank god their is a show like this anyway

From: guest (Robbie) , 160 months, post #15
Brooke D'Orsay also starred in the trailer for the fake TG movie "Switched" in which a guy and girl switch bodies.

From: Eric , 160 months, post #16
LOL! Thats inteersting. I guess she is being type caast as a body swap actress. So you have the URL of "Switched"

From: guest (Robbie) , 160 months, post #17

It is a pay site now but was not years ago when I first saw the trailer.

From: freeballer , 160 months, post #18
this is just not a show I'm gonna like.. I just know it, it DOES sound gimicy like eli (which surprisingly is still on. wth?!) and I yawned after i heard delta... were on too. BUT the worse part is she's gonna have the lawyer skills?! where's the conflict now? If we bypass the fact vanity issue, I assume the main idea of the show is that she is being taught to use her brain instead of her... body. Then shouldn't she struggle with learning stuff herself?!
Using your brain, or intellect is not given so why is this girl just handed out stuff and still being asked to swap or be transformed into this girl?

Quite lame, I wouldn't even watch this if it was a m2f. I give it a half season to a year

From: guest , 160 months, post #19
anyone know where I can download the 1st episode?

From: guest (Honest Abe) , 160 months, post #20
Freeballer, it's a limited run series. It's only going to be around for 13 episodes. You make some great arguments but I think the main conflict is going to be her reacting to her fiance and trying to win him back in the new body.
